I like Boise State because it focuses on students and their education. It offers many research opportunities and has connections in the community.
Boise State is a very advanced and top tier university to attend for academics. The access to high level athletic events, downtown life, outdoor adventure and student campus life is very good. It is a very good college to attend and attain a great education from.
BSU is Not Conservative. I attended for 10 months and walked on eggshells for 8 of my classes, and they were online. The professors transfer their beliefs onto you as fact and despite saying they are tolerant, don't ask questions so people really think about why the believe what they believe. Currently they are embroiled in a 10 million dollar lawsuit with a local coffee shop, and they had to suspend foundational classes in 2021 due to people being told their skin color either gives them an advantage or hurts them. They do not have a veterans club because it was open to all students, not just veterans, and is categorized in a way that it will never be sponsored by legit veterans groups. Avoid the Blue if you put value in your handwork and a person's character. If not, you will be feeling Blue.
I appreciate the availability for taking courses online. So many expensive fees with campus life though, like a parking pass.
Boise State University is an extremely diverse and understanding University, where professors care about not only your academic education but also your personal mental health. There are groups and activities for all different types of interests from Marching band to Anime!
I love Boise State, the community, the professors who are so understanding and the ambient that is created.
I loved the campus at first. However, now that I have been attending for almost three years I honestly think there are a lot of things that can be done to make the campus experience better (like updating the library furniture)
This school has a very chill atmosphere. Not a lot of parties and when there are "parties" they're like subpar-ties. A lot of part-time students come to this school and it is a commuter school so there's not a great amount of people to get to know after everyone finishes classes for the day.
The campus is very clean and located in a great part of Boise. The staff is friendly and all the professors I've had show their care for my education.
Great place to be and lots to do! There is always something going on when you'r eon campus. Everyone is nice and helpful. It is a very joyful place to be.
I enjoyed the art classes once I got past all the gen Ed. But I suggest spacing it out and taking art in with the gen Ed. Art classes are four hours each!
I took law courses online but suggest those in person to really get an understanding of the materials. I was lost
I only have taken one online course. It was nice but it does not compare to in-person learning. It is much harder to motivate yourself when it is online. But Boise State did a good job with the format of the online class.
I enjoyed the academic aspects of Boise State University a lot. It was challenging enough but not so difficult that you were struggling. The hardest part for me was the social aspect. You really need to put yourself out there to make friends. I suggest joining lots of clubs!
I mean as any other online student, being online is hard. But, like I said I haven't attended Boise so I am not sure what is was like at Boise, but from my point of view of online, its not the best and what we prefer but it is what we got and our teachers made the best of it.
Boise State is amazing. I actually haven't attended yet, I am attending in the fall of 2021. But, I have family and friends that go here and I have visited plenty of times and I LOVE it. There is something for everyone to do and experience, plus it is in the heart of downtown Boise which makes it even better. The sports excitement is the best too, I am a big football girl!
I took online classes during my 2020 Spring semester and I had a pretty good experience with my courses. My professors were able to quickly make adjustments to this unpredictable situation, and they were very patient and understanding with tests and assignments. They were willing to make some exceptions and extensions when it came to schoolwork, and that was very helpful and reassuring for my educational path.
I love BSU and I am having a great experience here so far! I love the campus, all of my professors so far have been wonderful, the staff is always super friendly and helpful, and there is so much variety and options when it comes to the different clubs and student activities available. I would highly recommend looking into BSU when you are considering different universities! And Boise itself is full of a lot of friendly and kind people, and the city has a lot of things to do and to offer for almost every kind of person! You will enjoy the time you spend in Boise and at BSU if you chose this university.
took all online classes but had to come onto campus for tests and such. Online enables me to have a full time job, my family and also get my degree. If you find yourself wanting to go back to school when your not right out of high school, online is the way to go!
I live in Boise. Boise State has always been the way i wanted to get my degrees. I have a family and an former military but wanted education. I would recommend BSU for everyone.
